sfx118452When Elizabeth looks in the mirror, she sees someone who is fat and ugly, even though her boyfriend, Ben, consistently tells her how attractive she looks.

Elizabeth begins to diet but with mounting pressures from within her family and conflict with her peers, this soon spirals into an out-of-control journey into anorexia.

As Ben’s journey into self-harm parallels Elizabeth’s story, their families mesh in surprising and unexpected ways. This new play uses innovative visual images and set design as well as a blend of humour and drama to question how people form perceptions of themselves.
Mission Australia found after surveying 50,000 young people that body image and the quest for the “perfect body” was the number one concern of Australian youth (Rickard, 2010).
